"We have just had our son's wedding at this most beautiful property. We cannot thank Cheryl and Jason for helping to make this one of the best Weddings ever. All the guests commented on the magnificent home and position. Everything we needed and more were provided with no fuss. I had the pleasure to meet Cheryl and the job she does with her staff is top quality.
Cannot recommend this place enough. The Aussies we will be back 😀"

"House was nice, remotely located but near enough to towns or Calistoga/Napa Valley for wine tasting. Had great sun during the day for lounging at the pool. Also nice is that a good chunk of the 8 acres behind the house is fenced, so those visiting with a dog don't need to worry about your pup running off."

"My daughter and I traveled back to Berkeley to visit her alma mater, Cal. We stayed in this adorable unit up in the N. Berkeley hills for three nights. The location was close enough to get to campus and Berkeley easily but far enough away to feel that you are not in the center of the action. The home is clean, tidy, spacious, well appointed, quiet, and provided a lovely place to rest after full days of exploring and sightseeing. The gardens in front and back and our own private patio were appreciated. The hills coming to and from the flat were fun to walk and drive as well! We were quite comfortable, content, and felt safe with a private entrance. If you look across the road, you can catch a glimpse of the bay in the distance. Note: Cell reception was better outside than inside, maybe due to the height of the property."

"We can’t imagine a better place to stay in Santa Cruz. (We lived here for three winter months, January through March.) The house itself is immaculate, with large windows looking out onto a lagoon and down to a nearby neighborhood beach. One of the neighbors told us he thinks the view from Tony and Laura’s place is “one of the best in Santa Cruz,” and he’s right. The lagoon is surrounded by towering eucalyptus trees. There is a lovely deck above the lagoon with a hot tub that’s kept ready to go for you. The beach, just a five-minute walk, is a friendly, neighborhood beach
The bathroom and kitchen are very modern, the fireplace is a treat if the weather turns cold (which it almost never does), and the tv-watching nook is totally comfy.
And in our view, all of that isn’t even the best part. In just five minutes, you can walk in one direction and be on the walkway above Pleasure Point, looking out over the Monterey Bay and one of the most famous surfing destinations in the world. We walked there every morning before dawn to watch the sun come up. And if you walk five minutes in the other direction, down through those eucalyptus trees, you’re at the beach – where you can relax in the sun or, at day’s end, watch the sunset.
How many places are there, anywhere, where you can do both of those things in just a short walk? Tony and Laura are marvelous, friendly, fair, and quick to deal with anything about the place you may not understand. We’ve already reserved our chance to come back.
